2 stars Well! Before giving an opinion about this album, take into consideration that this is my first review and I don't know the absolute truth about music. I just will give a personal opinion based in my own experience. I found this CD in a near music store and I decided to buy it right away because I had read very good recommendation of this band. I had heard a song, not of this album and I like it a lot. The problem was that the song I heard was not in this album. The first time I heard 'Le gare de Troyes' I felt so disappointed since the first song to the last. I had to listen ten times to get into it and now I don't dislike it but I concluded that it is not my cup of tea. The unique song that really fills me is 'Questions d'generations' an interesting conversation about a father and his son about the course of History. It's not bad album but if you're looking for a real must for your prog colection the 80's is not the recommended place. This album is not progressive though it has some few elements of progression like emulator sounds and sax arrangements, but it sounds insipid and lacking of music elaboration in comparison to other French bands. However I don't either consider it cheap 80's pop because it has a particular and why not interesting style. The lyrics are well-thought but the package, I mean the music itself, is not the best way to enjoy them. If you speak French language, probably that you will enjoy them it but you are a lover of French worthwhile music I better recommend you to listen to WLUD or Halloween. If anyone would ask me for a recommendation about this album I would told him/her to listen to it carefully before buyng it. Two stars for the initiative of the band but anyway an album recomended only for fans or collectors.
